Lesson Plan on Polar Bears

Students investigate how polar bears stay warm in arctic climates. In this polar bear lesson, students listen to The Little Bear by Hans de Beer before talking about how polar bears stay warm. They experiment with a "blubber glove" to determine how the bear's layer of fat helps it to stay warm in the cold waters. They complete a worksheet (not included) as an assessment.
